Lost luggage: Germany
Some might remember that my younger sister went to Croatia. She loved it. This week she's in Germany.
She flew from Japan to Dusseldorf, last Saturday. As yesterday was her birthday I sent her message. In her reply she said her luggage has been lost!
It's her business trip so she needs proper outfit. She had to go shopping from Day 1. UGH!
I've never had lost luggage experience, luckily. Is there anyone who faced trouble during trip?

I remember somebody had taken my luggage home... I had all kinds of things attached to it to make it identifiable: Green duck taped handle, plastic bag tied to all handles, stickers (My little sister put them on), and even contact information. Yet, SOMEHOW, someone had managed to take the wrong luggage. Luckily, the people call us and we got our luggage back.
Feeling down? Saddle up, It is the only cure.

Check with airline ruling, she may be entitled to compensation.
Sadly it has happened to me many times and once I never saw my bag again. I envisaged it going round and round on some conveyer belt in some obscure corner of the world waiting for me to pick it up.
Hope your sister gets her bags.
After 3 days I would be jumping on heads.

Baggage battles!? Oh no!
Right, I told her to keep all receipts to be compensated her expenses for underwear and clothes.
Her luggage was supposed to travel from our local airport - Narita (transit) - Frankfurt (transit) - Dusseldorf. It'll be hard to track where a mistake was happened. For me, it's quite shocking this happening occurred either in Japan or Germany. Quality of service is declining!?

Ugh I hope they find it.
My luggage was never lost per say, they knew where it was, it was just in a different state than I was lol. I was in Illinois, luggage was in Georgia (I was flying from California). They had it back to me within 3 days.

Actually just three months ago Lufthansa lost my luggage on a flight from Mexico city to Frankfurt. When I got it back 3 days later, all my valuables were missing... I was pissed. It took me two months to finally get compensation after I had complained so many times and posted my bad experience on their FB page etc.

I lent her my green suitcase this time. It's not a big deal at all. Jokingly my husband and I were talking and thinking about the suitcase which had been sat in our closet until last week like "He must be lonely in a dark place", "He must be waiting for my sister to be picked up" or "I hope he wasn't tortured by bad guys" Honestly I hope my sister didn't put expensive or confidential items in it.

Twice. I got it back within a day both times. I'm glad I don't have to deal with that garbage anymore.

Elzajpn - horrible start for your sister's day1, on a business trip...I hope thinks work out, in the end.
When my son and I travelled to Osaka Japan, 6 weeks after 9/11, loosing his billiard equipment (some custom made / some old with perfect feel, worth several thousand dollars) was our main concern, entering the World Junior 9-Ball tournament (top 32)...we worried more about the one Justic leather case, full of pool cues, than our suitcases combined - before 9/11, such equipment went on flights, as a general carry on.
Just a little "air baggage" Triva - that has ended some high earning sport careers.
- luckly, Steven Hendry was lucker, than some professionals travelling
Hendry's prime Snooker cue is broken in flight:
Seven-times World Champion's cue broken by baggage handlers
(guardian.co.uk, Tuesday 2 September 2003 02.05 BST)
The cue with which Stephen Hendry won his seven world titles has been broken by airline baggage handlers. It gives Hendry a dilemma. Changing cues can be an ordeal for the top players because no two are the same. Players can only insure their cues for face value, which is usually no more than £40. Increased airline security since September 11 has stopped players taking their cue cases into aircraft cabins. Hendry, 34, discovered the breakage on his return to Heathrow from tournaments in Hong Kong and Bangkok and now hopes that his cue doctor, Lawrie Annandale, can repair the damage. The season's first world ranking tournament, the LG Cup, is only five weeks away.
"The bottom 15 inches is broken off but the shaft is still intact," said Annandale. "I'm going to fix another butt. Stephen seems calm, but is obviously very worried and only Stephen will know if the cue plays exactly the same."
Hendry had used the cue - a gift from his parents when he was a child - throughout his professional career. He nearly lost it in 1990 when it was stolen during the Rothmans Grand Prix. It was, however, returned when a reward of £10,000 was offered.

Does the airline have any idea where the luggage went by mistake?
I once went to Scotland but my suitcase went to Ireland for 4 days! I was able to talk to the people in the Dublin airport and knew which day the bag would be coming back out to Scotland. Thank goodness the airline delivered my bag to our hotel on day 4, as we were renting a car and heading to the countryside after that.
If your sister checks the airline lost luggage info she will see how much they will pay for clothes, etc. In my case it was only $150 if my bag had never been recovered. That would have in NO WAY covered the cost of all that was in my suitcase.
I did have to go shopping in Edinburgh and it was very, very hard to find slacks that fit me as I am very tall and thin...even the Gap in Edinburgh had nothing that worked. I did find a few really nice wool sweaters and some turtlenecks, wore my own navy slacks for days! I kept the receipts and the airline did reimburse me for all the stuff I bought.
Now I always keep one complete change of clothes in my carry on bag due to this experience. And, hubby's bag made it with us and only mine was diverted. Go figure- he would not have even noticed if he had to wear the same clothes for 4 days!

My sister received the suitcase and the LH paid her money, I don't know the details. Anyway, she's leaving Dusseldorf for Japan. Goood!
